How the Shot Tracker Shooting Aid Device Works
It’s like FitBit for basketball shooting.
The shooting aid device works like this: you attach a sensor to the net, you stick one sensor in an orange wristband or a blue sleeve (your choice). Both sensors connect to the app on your phone using bluetooth and wifi.
The Shot Tracker App
There’s an app for coaches (Shot Tracker Coach) and an app for players (Shot Tracker Player), inside of which you create your Shot Tracker user profiles. Like other wearable device apps, the profiles create a social gaming component, allowing competition with other players.
The best use of the app is to look at your overall stats and the time you spend in the gym. Once the Shot Tracker engineers build in the ability to segment shot locations in a future release, this tool will be close to perfect.
Once you start to use this device regularly, the long-term rewards outweigh the cost of $150. This is the type of app that can help you gain more out of your expensive gym membership. The type of app that can help you up your shooting and your game, in general, no matter how good you already are. The type of tool that will help you learn about the fundamentals of shooting and help you be more mindful of your shooting technique.
[alert heading=”Pro Tip:” type=”success” close=”true”]Don’t compare your ranking to others; while you can see others’ accuracy and their time put in the gym, it doesn’t tell you their goals. Everyone has a different reason for using this app. If you want to use it as a tool, compare yourself to your own numbers and challenge players you know and whose game you respect.[/alert]
